Aryan Outfitters: Old Lady is Tailor to the KKK

58-year-old Miss Ruth is tailor to one of the world's most hateful (and hated) group, the Ku Klux Klan:

Coming from five generations of Ku Klux Klan members, 58-year-old "Ms. Ruth" sews hoods and robes for Klan members seven days a week, blessing each one when it's done. A red satin outfit for an Exalted Cyclops, the head of a local chapter, costs about $140.

I didn't realize there are so many steps in making a KKK robe! I thought it was simply:

1. Take bedsheet
2. Cut eyeholes
3. ???
4. Profit!

I spoke to you, Ms. Ruth a few weeks ago, but somehow I have misplaced your #, and you sent me the info on how to measure for my robe, I have lost it. I am trying to reachyou to get you to please send it to me again or e-mail it to me. I apologize for the inconvenience. I am in Kentucky, if you remember talking to me.?.

Exalted Cyclops

And isn't another of their titles Grand Dragon or something? And their guide book is the "Kloran"?

I have a reeeeeally hard time understanding how they can take themselves seriously. Bigotry aside (especially in this day and age), they dress and talk like a horrible permutation of a D&D group.

Oh please, everybody knows the KKK is just an excuse for Southern gentlemen to throw on flowing robes and dance around with each other.

LOL at devil's advocate. i think the name says it all. and in all fairness, the person he quoted did walk right into that one with the "how can you tolerate people with no tolerance" statement.
